Final Lantern Tour at Schoenbrunn Village

Final Lantern Tour of the Season

With the turn of the season step back in time as Schoenbrunn Village will guide you through the dark at the colonial era settlement.  On Saturday, September 17th, Schoenbrunn Village will host its very popular Fall Lantern Tour.

Tours will begin at 7:00pm with walkways and cabins lit by luminaries and hand dipped beeswax candles from Schoenbrunn.  Adults may carry their own lanterns and stroll at their own pace experiencing something new at every stop.  The Village will be transformed into a living 1770s frontier settlement as costumed Moravian Missionaries, Native Americans, and settlers fill the cabins and outdoors.

As the fall foliage begins you will be able to drive thru the entrance and feel as though you have been pulled by time 200 years into the past.  The sounds, sites, and tastes of autumn will fill your senses with the crackling leaves on the path to the original 18th century convert cemetery, the fields being harvested of the corn, and the delight of fresh apple butter served on bread, warm apple cider, and gingerbread cakes.


Find out the essentials of everyday life in the 1770s as you watch candle dipping, 18th century sewing techniques, and frontier survival skills.  Watch as the everyday tasks unfold in the woodworking cabin.  Learn the techniques of Dutch oven cooking over the open hearths.


Enter Ohio’s first Church to find out about the Moravian faith and customs at the Village.  Prepare for a lesson in the very first school when stopping at the Schoenbrunn Schoolhouse and try your hand at quill writing.  While you and your family are sharing in these extraordinary activities, listen as life is discussed in a rare meeting between European Missionaries and Native Delaware Converts.


Tours last until 10:00pm.  Admission prices are $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors, and $4.00 for children 7 to 17.  Under seven are free.  Schoenbrunn Village open weekends in September and October on Saturdays from 9:30am-5:00pm and Sundays noon-5:00pm.


Schoenbrunn will host the Colonial Trade Fair October 15th & 16th featuring a variety of 18th century vendors and demonstrators.  Watch the for the following weekend as the October 21st & 22nd the lower picnic facility is transformed into a small New England town for the reading of Sleepy Hollow.

  3. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

    I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers

  8. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
